Play the Forest School Way : Woodland Games and Crafts for Adventurous Kids
by Jane Worroll and Peter Houghton




Overview -
Woodland games, crafts, and other outdoor adventures from the Forest School--for parents and their children

The rise of the grassroots Forest School movement in recent years is part of a groundswell of concern about the wellbeing of our children, with many media scare stories about child obesity, nature deficit disorder (as described in Last Child in the Woods), and lack of exposure to risk.

This outdoor adventure manual is the antidote Packed full of ideas, from making nature jewelry and whittling a bow and arrow, to building a shelter and foraging for food, it also celebrates the Forest School philosophy of encouraging self-esteem, confidence, and social skills through engagement with nature. The activities contain variations for varied age groups, small groups like play dates or birthday parties, as well as things to do with just one or two children. Parents are encouraged to guide the play but the activity instructions are written in a simple style with fun illustrations so that kids can take the lead as well.
